Last call to share your priorities for the future of the Parkinson Recreation Center (PRC)! Originally built in 1972, we ask residents to imagine what the next 50 years would look like for the PRC.
Engagement is ongoing via the City’s engagement platform, Get Involved, until June 26. Residents can have their say on what they want to see in a new facility via a survey and enter to win one of three $100 local gift cards.
“Kelowna has grown rapidly over the past few decades and this growth is expected to continue into the future,” said Robert Parlane, Director of Parks and Buildings Planning. “The current site is unable to meet current demand and its replacement has been identified as a key priority since 2013. Subsequent studies have indicated that redevelopment is a better long-term investment for our community by full growth than the renovation and expansion of the existing facility.
Located in the center of a growing urban center, the site is adjacent to a future school, the Apple Bowl and sports fields which together provide many co-benefits and mixed-use uses.
Engagement with residents will help shape the design of the facility, with detailed planning and capital costing to follow. For more information, visit kelowna.ca/communitycampus.
